I just uploaded a photo for a book cover, and realized that I put up the wrong one. As I type this, it says the photo is awaiting approval.  Is there a way to replace it?  the "Upload" button is gone.

Hi Margaret!  Send a message to Patty- She's one of the Book Cover Image Approver and let her know. She'll be able to  remove it. After that you can upload the correct image that you have. Thanks for catching the mistake.

Yeah, once we've hit that submit button on an image, there's no way to take it back.  If the volunteer who was doing approvals didn't correct the problem, PM me with the details, or you can submit a new image now (since the old one is no longer in the queue).  Go down to the bottom left corner of any page.  Under "my account" click on "member tools" and use the Upload Book Covers option there. smiley

You can also contact me if you accidentally uploaded a wrong image. I am usually online in the evening or late at night, and you can PM me with details and I'll look into it as well.

Feel free to contact me as well, any time! You can contact any member with a BIA icon under their name -- that indicates we are Image Approvers, and I'm certain we are all willing to help out. It's a great group of members!!!

Just for the record: How it works

Once an image is submitted, it goes in an Approvals line that must be cleared before any other image can be submitted for any of the listings that are currently in the Approvals line.  So a new image cannot be submitted for a listing until the previous submission clears the queue.  Approvers frequently go through and update the queue. After the previous submission clears the line (either approved or declined) then a new image can be submitted / resubmitted.
